Hamas releases video of 3 hostages on 100th day of captivity

As Israel marked the 100th day of the Oct 7 hostages’ captivity on Sunday with a 24-hour rally in Tel Aviv, Hamas released a video showing the first signs of life of three of the hostages. Over 130 Israeli civilians remain captives of the Palestinian terrorist group.

In the video, terrorists had Noa Argamani, 26, Yossi Sharabi, 53, and Itai Svirsky, 38, introduce themselves and then ask the Israeli government to bring them home.

The clip ended with the Hamas writing onscreen that their fate would be revealed on Monday, according to Reuters.

It was unclear when the video was taken.

Noa Argamani, a second-year student at Ben Gurion University, was last seen in a viral video showing her on the back of a motorcycle being kidnapped by terrorists from the Nova music festival at Kibbutz Re'im on October 7.

In the Oct. 7 video, as Argamani is driven away on the back of the motorcycle, she can be seen screaming “Don’t kill me!” while attempting to reach for her boyfriend, Avinatan Or, who was also taken captive.

Noa's mother Liora, who has terminal cancer, has begged for her daughter to be released so she can see her before she dies.



Some called the video of the hostages released by Hamas psychological warfare and a response to Liora’s pleas.

The video also showed Yossi Sharabi, who was kidnapped from Kibbutz Be'eri. He reportedly offered himself as a hostage to save his wife and three children, who survived the Hamas massacre after hiding for 8 hours.

His brother Eli is still missing and it is unknown if he is alive or dead. The brother's wife and daughters were killed in the massacre by Hamas terrorists. 

Also seen in the video was Itai Svirsky, another hostage kidnapped from Kibbutz Be'eri, where he was visiting. Hamas terrorists found him hiding with his mother and killed her in front of him.

Itai's father was also murdered by Hamas and his three golden retrievers were killed. 

Previously, Hamas released similar videos of captives that the terror group has been holding since October 7, when terrorists massacred over 1,200 and took over 240 people hostage.

Earlier in the day, Hamas announced that some of the remaining hostages may have been killed. Hamas spokesperson Abu Obeida said in a televised statement, “The fate of many of the enemy’s hostages and detainees has become unknown in recent weeks and the rest are all in the tunnel of the unknown due to the Zionist aggression. Most likely, many of them were killed recently, the rest are in great danger every hour and the enemy’s leadership and army bear full responsibility," according to the Times of Israel.

Hamas has previously lied about the fate of hostages.

Israeli officials called the terrorist’s comments psychological warfare. Hagar Mizrahi, a forensic official with Israel’s Health Ministry, previously said that autopsies of murdered hostages who had been recovered were inconsistent with Hamas' claims that they were killed in Israeli airstrikes.

On Sunday, IDF Spokesman Rear-Admiral Daniel Hagari said, “The military operation takes time. It obligates us to be precise, and we are adapting it in accordance with the threats and the hostages who are in the field.”
